Jou Tou – French Traditional Songs from around the World (La francophonie autour du globe)
Performance by Silk Road MusicUsing a great variety of instruments from around the world, Silk Road Music presents French music from a global and cosmopolitan perspective. Some of the songs come from familiar folk traditions of Québec and France, while others will take the audience to such exotic lands as la Camargue or Morocco via the gypsy routes of Southern Europe. Jou Tou delivers a sampling of French culture that has been felt all over the planet, from Vietnam to Madagascar and on to the Americas, where it mixed with existing traditions to create interesting fusions. Audiences will be transported from the cafés of Paris to the Casbahs of Cairo. Here's the excerpt from another show, to showcase André Thibault and Qiu Xia He's unique mix of musical genres.
